Kingfishers basement tanking systems help to create dry environments which can then be effectively insulated to meet current building regulations. A basement tanking membrane can be used to speed up the drying out of flood-damaged properties during basement tanking. Our Aquatech membrane provides an excellent primary waterproofing system when used with a cavity drainage membrane.
It is in our professional opinion that basement tanking systems in buildings are better when a damp proofing membrane is utilised. If you are considering basement waterproofing, it is important that you consider all the options. Our wide range of basement tanking membranes is a quick and simple solution to your basement waterproofing needs.
There are two methods of waterproofing a basement that needs to be considered. You can either block the passage of water with external waterproofing or control the ingress of water to an expulsion point. You might be wondering which basement tanking membrane is suitable for your needs. If that is the case, we have the answer.
Basement waterproofing is crucial when a property or part of a property is at ground level or below. If a basement tanking membrane is not applied, water is likely to build up in the ground surrounding the basement. This can lead to water ingress in cracks and joints in the basement.
Without the use of basement tanking systems or external waterproofing, water penetration can later lead to damp-related problems. This can include mould, decay, structural issues and other damp-related issues. That’s where our high-quality basement tanking products come in. They offer unrivalled protection against water penetration.
Whether you are a homeowner or a property developer, it is important to protect the structure against water ingress. When considering basement tanking products, it is vital that you take into account all the options. Even if you have never experienced basement flooding, it is still very important to the design of a basement. We are experts in this field and can provide advice regarding our basement tanking systems.
Due to ADR regs on transport of flammables we can only send 25L drums of solvent product via premium rate special carrier, hence minimum FREE carriage order is 4 x 25L or ring for a quote. Alternatively, you can still collect single 25L drums at our Ulverston or Glasgow trade counters.
Kingfisher “Aquatech” is the ultimate brush applied tanking system for basements, earth retaining walls, underground garages, water tanks and more. This damp Proof tanking slurry has been trusted by structural waterproofing professionals for over 20 years.
An absolutely essential component of the Kingfisher tanking system, Anti-Sulphate (Ground Salt Neutraliser) must be applied wherever ground water has penetrated. This is because ground water contains sulphates and chlorides which degrade Tanking materials.
Kingfisher K-X11 Waterproof Admixture is a copolymer blend of latex and acrylics. This waterproofing admixture for mortar dramatically improves the characteristics of the mix, providing water resistance, adhesion, strength and flexibility to both renders and screeds.
Primarily used to seal wall to floor joints as an integral part of our Tanking system. Barrier mortar is easy to use and highly effective.
Almost instantly plugs flowing water, which may be pouring through cracks in mortar, bricks or stonework. All it takes is a handful of tank plug mortar held in place over the affected area until set. Sets in 2 minutes.
Use the Kingfisher Concrete Mixer Paddle to mix tanking slurry and renders. Use with electric drill with 10 mm chuck or larger. Size: 100 x 580mm, Hex shank (10mm) 500 to 700 rpm Max.
The Kingfisher waterproofing membrane is durable and versatile with 3mm deep dimples to offer a perfect combination of waterproofing and slim line design. It can be used as a floor or wall membrane providing a robust boundary against water ingress.
Made from tough 0.7mm gauge HDPE, the 508 range has an 8mm dimple profile which makes it perfect for internal waterproofing of retaining walls, without the need for extensive surface preparation. Rapid installation is possible using the “Multi-plug” as a
The multiplug is designed to achieve a firm fix in a variety of soft or otherwise imperfect surfaces and its integral rubber sealing grommet ensures that water cannot pass through the fixing. The multiplug doubles as a “rawl plug” accepting a 5mm screw,
Sealing Rope is used to form a seal at the overlap of adjacent sheets of membrane when neither a flange joint or stud in to stud hase been made. Sealing Rope is also used around protrusions through the membrane such as pipes.
Overtape is used to create single sided tape joints, as an over-tape to seal butted or overlapped joints and also to seal around protrusions through the membrane.
Mesh Tape is a self-adhesive butyl rubber sealing tape with a fleece finish which is used where a surface 'key' for plastering or rendering over is necessary. Used to join any of the meshed damp proofing membranes or below ground as an over tape where th
Clearly any moisture that gathers in the air gap behind the membrane will want to run down to floor level. To accommodate this, form a channel around the perimeter of the room, lay in pea gravel and bed the “Basedrain” into the pea gravel.
Kingfisher Damp Proof Paint (Damp Guard) can be applied to concrete, brick, renders and more, to help protect against water ingress. This damp proof membrane paint forms a damp guard liquid membrane and is quick drying.
